This week Bryan and Ricky dip into the old "Fan Grab Bag" to bring you episode ideas, requested by you fans, that might not be big enough for entire episodes of their own but work nicely as 3 bite-sized topics!  So join the guys as they discuss the mysterious Antikythera Mechanism, the wacky old science of Phrenology and the hilarious world religion The Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster!  So tune in and keep the topic ideas coming!
